Bear in mind most of the religious whackjobs don't consider Catholics to be real Christians.

Except when they want to boast about how Christianity is the biggest religion, of course, then oddly enough the 1.3 billion+ Catholics are definitely counted...

Funny that.

That, and the prototype of Christianity is . . . . Catholicism.

I've had many people (mostly Hispanic) come up to me and say: "I'm Christian, I'm not Catholic."

I then explained to them that Christianity started with Catholicism, and that Martin Luther (a Catholic Monk) was the origin of Protestant Christianity, the Reformation, and Vatican II.

Sigh.

I'd pound my head into a wall, but I'm not sober enough to feel it at this point.

Good on this judge.

The Bible is very clear on masking and social distancing when you have disease and they don't want to follow those god given mandates so why should we believe them now.

Bet they were wearing mix-fabrics, eat shellfish, some have tattoos, and worst of I bet their bathrooms are within 18 cubits of where they eat!!!

In my last job I worked with a woman who was not a complete idiot, but certainly very poorly educated. She was of Polish catholic descent.

She was telling a story at work about how one of her sons (aged about 12) had grown an interest in christianity (I think he liked a girl who was religious) and asked if she could take him to church, specifically the (suburb name) Christian Church, and she'd explained to him that their family isn't christian they're catholic.

So basically your story except bizarrely told from the other side!

I'm not christian and my forebears are/were protestants (Anglican on mum's side, Lutheran on dad's) but her story was too much for me and I was worried about how her kid had understood it so I gave her the five minute history of christianity from the time of Jesus and the Roman Empire's catholicism through the reformation when Luther in Germany and shortly after that Henry VIII in England had kicked off protestant churches. I pointed out that protestant zealots hate catholics and she was pretty much playing into their hands by saying stuff like that to her kid which is why it's probably a good thing to maybe have another chat with him lest he completely misunderstand his own family's faith story.

But I realised I've never met a catholic who seems to know much at all about the history of the reformation. They're mostly still in denial about it it seems. We did it in history class at school (was a protestant school, go figure), although I went to an Australian school we seemed to do more English/European history than our own country's. I remember a remarkable amount from that class 32 years ago, possibly because the teacher was a smoking hot woman teaching in an all-boys school and she clearly loved her job.

In the 1970s Bobby Sands and the hunger strikers in the Maze Prison were in the news. As a wee lad just becoming interested in politics and world events I asked my mum to explain "the troubles".

I was a 9 year old Jewish kid and I didn't understand why "they're different kids of Christian and they hate each other" made any sense. Up to then I thought Christians only hated Jews and Muslims and other non-Christians.

Still doesn't make a lot of sense when I think about it too hard.

In America, when someone says that they're a "christian" rather than a Baptist, or Methodist or Episcopalian or Catholic -- they mean a "born-again" Christian. It means that they have had an adult conversion or affirmation.

It's part of the lingo -- like "saved", "annointed", etc

Im too sober to believe that you have had that conversation with "many" Hispanic non-Catholics; their numbers are not many.

Also, by your argument, they are all Jewish on account of Jesus being one.

Someone posted it the other day and it was a scan of a newspaper clipping so I can't find it, but it was basically an op ed by a pastor who said something to the effect of, "There's nothing in the Bible that exempts you from vaccination.  The one thing the Bible is very clear on, however, is exempting you from putting your wants above the needs of others, so get the shot."

And yet these are the same people who say they believe in the Bible. Did they miss the part about Thou shall not worship false idols?

They're also the ones who ask for prayers from prayer warriors when they're dying in the hospital, thinking God is some granola hippie who loves everyone. He doesn't. He's sent plagues, killed first-born sons, drowned every living thing except for some people and animals on an ark. I can't help but wonder if Covid is now his punishment for worshipping false idols like Donald Trump. As Ezekiel (and Samuel L. Jackson) tells us, "You will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you."

The entire concept that the religious get exemptions to break the law, in truth and in fact constitutes the establishment of a religion, by government fiat.
It should have never been passed, and needs to be repealed before we can really start retracing our way back through the Reagan years to Democracy.

For these people, The Bible is just an a la cartedefense-shield for whatever they don't want to do -- wether it's recognizing some one else's civil rights, or participating in herd immunity against a global pandemic -- which they absolutely should be interpreting as God-sent wrath from which they should be seeking protection if they're going to be stupid enough to take the Bible literally!!

I have this vaguely-worded book written by a bunch of dudes that claim god told them what to write and has been translated so badly that a lot of people can't even agree on what exact words should be used. I don't agree with some of it, so I ignore those parts. Some of the rules are now illegal, so I don't do those parts either. The new part is supposed to override the old part, but some of that old stuff gives me a list of people I like to hate, so I keep those parts in. I've never actually read the entire book, but I hear about some of it and because the book is just so thick and so hard to read, I just can't be bothered to study it for myself - so I'll just take their word for it (assuming I agree with what they tell me it says). And right now, several multi-millionaire preachers are telling me it says something about Covid that's bad. And it pisses off the Left, which as we all know are evil gay-loving sodomites - so they must be right because I want to agree with that part. Anyway, I choose to believe the parts I like! And right now the parts I like seem to point to the 'fact' that I should not get a vaccine or wear a mask. So there! I have religious exemption....
Until they get sick. Then they're at the hospital demanding anything that will save their lives. Suddenly they don't care what the treatment is or how science derived it - just give it to them. And once the danger is past, they immediately praise Jesus for the miracle. And they go right back to hating everybody and everything and demanding you leave them the fark alone.

Well he presumably had to deal with mobsters while involved in casinos if not other property deals and these would have been big-money deals so it's easy to imagine that someone got offed in connection with at least one of those, even if Trump didn't directly do or order it. He did flat-out demand the murder of that Iranian dude but that's arguably normal presidenting by US standards so again he might get a pass.

And he appears to have been fearful of his parents and their emotional disengagement from him, and appears to have parented in that exact same style, which I guess is a kind of honoring but also not really.

I've never actually read the entire book, but I hear about some of it and because the book is just so thick and so hard to read, I just can't be bothered to study it for myself - so I'll just take their word for it (assuming I agree with what they tell me it says). And right now, several multi-millionaire preachers are telling me it says something about Covid that's bad. And it pisses off the Left, which as we all know are evil gay-loving sodomites - so they must be right because I want to agree with that part. Anyway, I choose to believe the parts I like! And right now the parts I like seem to point to the 'fact' that I should not get a vaccine or wear a mask. So there! I have religious exemption....
Until they get sick. Then they're at the hospital demanding anything that will save their lives. Suddenly they don't care what the treatment is or how science derived it - just give it to them. And once the danger is past, they immediately praise Jesus for the miracle. And they go right back to hating everybody and everything and demanding you leave them the fark alone.

Yeah I didn't really get the hype about the Da Vinci Code either, I quit a few pages in.


Try "The Eight" by Katherine Neville. I found that better than any of Dan Brown's offerings.

maram500: Aussie_As: RasIanI: It's so painfully obvious and transparent "why?" anti-vaxxing morons are behaving the way they are -- leaving aside the long-time anti-vaxxers that have always been on the fringe since forever, the only thing that made it remotely controversial is the politicization of the entire pandemic by Donald J F***ing Trump.

Now I have it on good authority that he's the most christian man who ever christianed so let's not forget that.

/married how many times? cheated with a porn star? rich man and the eye of the what now? ... I'm sure that can't be right

You forgot the lying and stealing. And there's probably more.

Trump has demonstrably broken all of the Ten Commandments except (so far as we know) murder and honoring thy father and mother.


I told my very religious parents that Pinocchio was the living embodiment of the Seven Deadly Sins, has broken 9 of the 10 Commandments on a near daily basis (the last only excepted only because he is too big of a wimp to do his own dirty work), and was proposing the elimination of the employment tax to destroy Social Security and Medicare. They voted for a Democrat for the first time in their lives. Probably won't ever happen again unless Pinocchio runs in 2024, as an end run around the justice system.

If I recall correctly, the dipshiat (like everything else) made his father's eulogy all about himself, so I think we can safely nix the parent honoring

A religious exemption for the covid vaccine should carry a concomitant exemption from covid treatment.

Sign right here and accept the consequences of your "faith."

TuckFrump: Gyrfalcon: "We don't wanna" just isn't a religious belief.

Bible: Welcome the Immigrant

Christians: But we don't wanna

Bible: Love thy neighbor

Christians: But we don't wanna

Bible: Serve the needy, without expecting a reward

Christians: But we don't wanna

Bible: Give away your possessions to the poor

Christians: But we don't wanna

Jesus' entire ministry can be summed up in 4 words: Don't be a dick

Christians: But we wanna


Question, not sarcastic, not snarky: is this an American christian thing, or is this characteristic of Christianity around the world?
